Oeschinensee, known as Switzerland’s most beautiful lake, lives up to the hype. This lake is nestled in the mountains surrounded by waterfalls. We managed to get some really beautiful shots and wanted to share them here. Enjoy!
First, we took the early train to Kandersteg in an attempt to avoid the crowds. It worked, despite being a super hot day. Next, you take a short walk through town to get to the gondola up.
Once you’re at the top of the mountain, it’s just a short walk to the lake. The surrounding area is gorgeous.
At the end of the trail, the lake sits, shimmering as the sun begins to hit it. We walked around as much of it as we could and discovered two gorgeous waterfalls. There were people camping around the lake, some fishing and some enjoying the lake on a raft. It’s an incredible place. And now for a lot of pictures.
Looking at these photos makes me want to go back ASAP. We would have loved to actually try the water, but it was so hot the day we were there that it was difficult to stay in the sun for longer than 5 minutes. It would be amazing to live in this area–so many people that were here by mid-day obviously come here often. So jealous! Though it was a bit far from where we were staying in Lauterbrunnen, this was one of our favorite places on our trip to Switzerland! You can see why.
